Results From openSUSE Contributor Survey

December 12th, 2007 by
Novell Open Audio

281 contributors from the openSUSE community participated in a survey last month. The survey was part of a research project on the topic of firm-sponsored open source communities, hosted by the University of Oslo. Topics in the survey include:

  • level of contribution
  • reasons for participating
  • attitude towards Novell

The results are now ready and can be found here:

The commented version includes some analysis of the results and statistical measures of correlation between questions in the survey. The simple version only shows the distribution of frequencies in percent, but also includes the answers to the open text fields in the survey.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Interesting reading.
    It would be good to repeat this kind of survey some time after:
    - creation user directory (the scope is not yet clear to me),
    - opensuse.org email address as a sign of recognition,
    - some experience with decision making process now when we have Guiding Principles and the first board.
